Support La Trobe Art Institute

Since its foundation, La Trobe University has valued and supported arts and cultural activities. Today we hold one of the most significant university art collections in Australia.

Support La Trobe Art Institute


Financial donations to support La Trobe Art Institute programs can be made through La Trobe University Give Now. Donations will go towards exhibition development, new art and writing commissions, publications and artwork acquisitions.

Please note that donations over $2 are tax deductible in Australia with 100% of your donation going directly to funding programs.

We look forward to developing new and ongoing relationships with all of our supporters to enrich the University’s cultural mission and grow our public art collections.

Gift an artwork

Contributions of works to the La Trobe University Art Collection can be made as direct donations or through the Federal Government's Cultural Gifts Program (CGP). This helps the University acquire significant works of art.

To discuss artwork donations, please contact us.

The Cultural Gifts Program offers tax incentives to encourage people to donate cultural items to public art galleries, museums, libraries and archives in Australia.

Support digitisation of our art collections

Your generous support will enable us to undertake the work required to unlock our collections to students, researchers and a wide public through digitisation.
